Quiet

Today is Saturday. Today I am being lazy and eating my halloween candy. I can't get Phantom of the Opera music out of my head, because my friend and I watched it twice, all the way through, at our sleepover. Everything is quiet, and I can hear the computer humming. It's kind of freaky, because usually everything is loud: the boys playing, Abe barking, some kind of musical instrument practice. But now everything is quiet. Almost everyone is sleeping, my Dad on the couch, my Mom in her room, Abe at my feet. The boys and Mikayla are outside where I can't hear them. Call me crazy, but now that it is quiet (FINALLY) I want it to be loud again. Don't you always want what you don't have?

Happy Birthday Jack!!!

Wow there are a lot of birthdays this month!! Lol. Today my little bro is turning 7...I can't believe it!! I was so excited when I found out I had a little brother, and now it's been seven years *sniff sniff*. My mom and dad always say he is so much like me...that's why we argue so much! haha just kidding. He's the coolest little guy, so athletic and smart (just like me) and don't let me forget funny! I can't wait to see him grow up even more...okay now I'm sounding like a mom! (which isn't something to be embarrassed by, all you moms out there) For his birthday he got an acoustic guitar (LUCKY!!!!), a nerf gun dart tag thing, which HURTS if you get hit without the padding on (Jack has already established that by hitting my sister "accidentally" in the neck) some Iowa sweatshirts, and some other little things. I know this is my brother's special day...but I can't wait until it's MY birthday!!!:)

Happy Early Birthday, Abe!


Saturday is my dog, Abe, 's birthday! I know it must not be that exciting because he's just a dog (as my mom says) but it's still exciting! He's turning one. I just watched a tape of when he came home for the first day...awww! I can't believe how much he's grown. And become more of a phsyco. Haha. This is what a biography of Abe would look like...
Name: Abe
Birthday: 11/11/05
Breed: Goldendoodle (Golden Retriever, Standard Poodle mix)
Occupation: Family Dog
Hobbies: Jumping in the pool (on purpose), Chasing squirrells, eating anything he can find (even nasty things) rolling in poop, jumping on people, nibbling on fingers, chasing his tail
Specialties: Making you feel better when you're down (because no one can be as much as a dork as him haha just kidding)

There ya have it-well most of it-about Abe. To really understand him I think you would have to live with him, as I do. Happy Early Birthday, Abe! Love ya! <3

I'm Ba-ack!

Whew it feels good to be blogging again! Wow so much has happened since like July so where to start...
School has been going good, not too hard or too easy. Tons of homework, though expected. My least favorite subject in Spanish, not because it's hard but because my teacher is >:(! But you can't go through school without having an evil teacher so you can't complain...
No softball since July, it's not the season for it. I dunno how I'll survive! Haha just kidding. I did do swimming for my school though, that was fun ( and easy ) but now I'm doing it on a team not related to school. It's harder, and we have super snore meets every 2 weeks. Blah.
Last Friday was the school dance!! So many good times...no good songs though. They were all very old, like "Temperature" by Sean Paul and "Dontcha" by the Pussycat Dolls. Oh well, I had a good time.
